SIMPLE DISHES FOR A HECTIC SEASON
The period between the start of the school year and the beginning of the High Holy Day season is very dear to my heart. It’s a time when our children are excitedly venturing into new schools or classes and settling into their new settings, while we adults are happily getting back into our old routines and doing our best to help our children make a smooth transition.
This year, however, this period is quite short and Rosh Hashana is just around the corner.
At the markets, you can feel the excitement of people making plans and starting to get organized for the large holiday meals. And so, now that we have just a few days before the Jewish New Year, I’ve chosen to bring you recipes for main dishes that are simple, quick and easy to prepare so that we can spend our time getting ready for the holiday.
The first dish is a beef and potato recipe with cumin; the second is chicken liver with potatoes; the third is a fillet of sea bass on a bed of steamed vegetables; and the fourth is meatballs in a tomato sauce that is a favorite among children. And, of course, I couldn’t resist adding a dessert recipe that can make every meal complete.
